Blue and Gabe comin out of the high country
Stargazer and me takin in the view from off the ridge on a four day ride. Note no bed rolls behind the saddles we have learn to put it all under the saddle. you will see from some of our earlier rides we did not all ways do this. It makes it easier to get on and off the horse and it is better for the hores not to have a big bed roll on it's kidneys.

Then it's off to bed a blanket wrapped in oil cloth with your horse's sweat blanket & epishamore for a pad to sleep on & your saddle for a pillow. Maybe a rope tied around the bottom to keep ya from kicking out. The oil cloth that can be used for a rain slicker & a light set of balanced saddle bags and maybe my coat is all that goes behind my saddle any more.
